Marco Pierre White says women are too emotional to be chefs

I read in an article last week that Marco Pierre White felt that women were too emotional to be chefs and that they aren’t strong enough to carry heavy pans around the kitchen. He counteracted saying that they make better chefs with better palates. There were lots of very well known and successful female chefs who were very disappointed in hearing his views. I think they felt it was winding back the time in what we strive to be an equal society. The influx of new chefs is quite low and with statements like this from someone who is so well regarded in industry I would imagine it will have a huge effect on female apprentice chefs.

What are your thoughts?
